The Department of Mathematics has many different opportunities available. Students can learn about the number of activities at OSU.
- Radical Pi: Provides opportunities for students to interact with their peers as well as participate in presentations by faculty and graduate students on topics of interest to an undergraduate.
- A student chapter of SIAM (Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics): Reinforces interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, and conferences.
- Actuarial Science Club: Informs students about the actuarial profession and to further the goals of those students who are interested in pursuing a career as an actuary.
- Women in Math & Science Club: The first goal of the group is to provide support and encouragement to women who have decided to pursue a career in math and/or science. The second goal is to do outreach to area middle-school aged children to encourage girls and boys to consider studying a science when they get to college and to demonstrate that a wide variety of people are qualified to do science.
In addition, the department provides a number of undergraduate research opportunities:
- The Reading Classics Group provides undergraduates with the opportunity to work as part of a research team with other undergraduates/graduate students/faculty on exciting mathematics topics
- Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) provides undergraduates with a summer research opportunity interfacing with faculty and their peers on the intersection of mathematics and the biosciences.
- Individual Research opportunities are available to undergraduates. Students have the opportunity to work with mathematics faculty on current problems in math.
